Probing Neural Connectivity at Multiple Temporal Scales

Professor Laleh Najafizadeh is PI on a new NSF grant from the Biomedical Engineering (BME) Program of the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET).

The title of the project is "Probing Neural Connectivity at Multiple Temporal Scales" and the award amount is $363,273. This project is in collaboration with David Margolis (Co-PI), Assistant Professor at the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience (CBN) from the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers.

Rutgers is playing a key role in a new NSF scientific software initiative

Shantenu Jha is a co-PI and the lead Computing Engineer/Science Faculty on a new $20M NSF Scientific Software Innovation Institutes for Molecular Sciences. The Institute called MolSSI -- Molecular Science Software Institute, will enable computational scientists to tackle problems that are significantly larger and more complex than thosecurrently within reach. MolSSI will impact domains that use molecular simulations -- from proteins and drug designs to the next generation of materials.

Sparse and Low Rank Methods for Imbalanced and Heterogeneous Data

Vishal M. Patel received an NSF award for the project titled "Sparse and Low Rank Methods for Imbalanced and Heterogeneous Data." This is a two year collaborative effort between Rutgers University (Vishal Patel, PI) and The Johns Hopkins University.   Rutgers' share for this award is $249,152.

As part of this project, Vishal and his team will develop novel sparse and low-rank modeling techniques for dealing with imbalanced, heterogeneous and multi-modal visual data-sets.
